Gordon Chang Explains China's Massive Belt and Road Initiative
"Or tributary nations. That will be simply vassals. Is that an over-simplification. How does one belt one road work. What is the global vision for china as it looks at the world coming up to the hundred anniversary of the communist revolution the belton road initiative as it's now called is really started out. As to initiatives there was a belt and these were announced the in september two thousand thirteen there was a belt which was to connect the east coast of china to europe and it was a road which was a water route connecting both locations east coast of china and europe since then Dalton road has been extended around the world and they've added the digital silk road which started out life in two thousand fifteen or so as a separate plan but was incorporated into belt road so belton road is really an attempt to build the infrastructure to tie the world to china now. This gets a little bit complicated. I've never really been too worried about belton road largely because i've tracks long hong kong. I didn't do infrastructure work but my firm did and i can tell you that. All of the economically justifiable projects in the world were being handled by the private sector. What china's doing is building the infrastructure. That nobody else wanted to. Yeah and so and subsidizing it been below market rates. Yes there is a danger. Though and that is we have seen What's called dead trapped diplomacy because these projects are not economically justifiable for the most part but what china has been able to do was to uses position as a creditor to take over control of facilities so for instance it took control of hambantota which is important sri lanka. We know that china has used. Its colombo international container terminal also sri lanka For military purposes djibouti china's really offshore military installation is in a country that has a debt to china that is probably an excess of one hundred percent of its gross domestic product. So that's no coincidence. But the reason why. I've get really worried about belton. Road is because of the bahamas. Yes in the bahamas. Hong kong firm is pouring something like three billion. Maybe a little bit more into the freeport container port. It's also there's a
A Review Of The Long Walk, Chapters 9-18
"The long walk continues with only sixty. Walkers remaining geared is determined to make it to freeport or he'll see his mother and girlfriend jan more walkers get their tickets and the boys continue their discussions as physical and mental exhaustion weigh on them eventually. The long walk enters massachusetts and only three boys remain gary mic varieties and stebens. Only one will be the last walker standing but even so at what price victory. Nice day were in this section of the book and one of the things we talked about last episode is how we were a little disappointed that there wasn't a lot more world building going on yeah King seemed to be very vague as to what sort of relived these characters were in boys going on. We got the sense that things weren't great but not all of the details and in this one. There's a lot more of that world building we're looking for. Yeah it definitely satisfied my craving for those details. I still don't know that it was enough for my my modern sensibilities if you will I wanted to know what was going on. Outside of the walk and king still doesn't really reveal that but he gives us just a little bit more of a taste. Oh those are so delicious. Yeah each one of them is pretty great. The fact there's now thirty first day of april. Yeah that was the first one in this section. I was like whoa and you know. We talked about the dark tower. There were times early on. We're like boy. That's a weird little editing mistake. At first i thought well maybe april thirty. One is an editing mistake but then there were a couple more came shortly thereafter. That you're like. Oh kings doing something here. Yeah yeah there were fifty one states. When i saw that my immediate question was what is that fifty for state. I mean it could be anything is is it. Puerto rico is his canada. I don't know like it could be so many things it could be half of. Mexico is the fifty first state. It's not really important to the story. But it would be kinda cool to have one of those jr token style maps or like the the dark tower style maps that shows the world of the long walk and the path that they walk. Yep and then you can see like now. There's this you know. East pennsylvania and west pennsylvania. Yeah you're not even thinking big enough jay. Maybe like the western eight states all disappeared or were destroyed and so then they picked up nine states that we don't have today and not not just one new one. What do you think of that. Yeah or maybe california finally broke into five pieces. Resold alaska back to the russians for for a net total of one game state. Yeah and cut off. Florida like bugs. Bunny does in that. Famous jif yup. Yeah there were other interesting facts. That that Apparently there were german air raids on the east coast of the united states. And there's clearly has been some kind of takeover. The major seems to be the figurehead leader or commander of this Of the united states. So i'm guessing some sort of military coup but somebody says in the old days before the change and the squads when they were still millionaires like basically went before before a lot of wealth was redistributed to who knows who knows in what way but clearly this is not the world that king lived through when he was writing this story. Right the most intriguing one was this idea that world war two was different in how it played out so there's talks about german raids on the east coast. That occurred that people were afraid of and then later on they talk about the provo governor who is a war hero. He led a raid on a german nuclear base in santiago in nineteen fifty three. So yeah this is definitely not the world that is just hey our world bit in the future. This is a total man in the high castle. Style alternate reality or maybe even a father callahan like slipping through alternate versions of of the universe or of the of the world making this whole story. Kind of dark tower finney.

The Most Important Chart for the Markets
"We start off tonight with the most important charter in the market. Because of course we would according to one of our traders check out the yield curve spread between ten and two year treasuries at its highest level since february twenty eighteen. So our rates off to the racist. Could this rate shock crush this record rally karen. You flag this yeah. I don't know it will crush this record rally. We don't want rates to skyrocket to quickly. I mean this is a big move but still you know. The absolute is seventy eight basis points but it is sort of telling us that the expectation is that the economy. Oh heat up and we've seen that. The resources traded that tim talks about. We've seen in energy. We're seeing it in the banks Even though they don't really aren't giant to ten spread they do trade that way. So it's indicative of the expectation of a heating economy. Maybe also more stimulus. So that's sort of how position but i also have a big inflation bet on because i do think there is a chance that inflation gets away from the fed and i don't know what they would do in the shorter to medium term the timeframe though tim i mean it's got to be a goldilocks right. Just enough inflation. Not too much inflation. It's gotta be just right. Yeah i mean it definitely not too hot not too cold and you have a case where normalized rates coming out of this and whatever that means also but where we were coming into kobe remember. We're somewhere between one. Forty one seventy five and the ten year so pointed out what the trades that have been beneficiaries or have had the extra boost that comes from this and the resources trade. I mean look coppers three fifty. We haven't been three fifty since march of two thousand and thirteen and some of the trades that look like it's back to the future in the resource look at steel companies. And i'm not just talking about us. Steel look at mattel which arguably the biggest deal company in the world or posco. These you know mt. pk ex. Those are names. you can track over here freeport. We talk about all the time. So i think you have a case where the assessment of all of this to me is more about normalizing. It's not that we're in great shape. And in fact i think we're in a tough place for markets and even some of these trades when we've normalized but we aren't near normalization at this point then later on fiscal even if that's disappointing number Infrastructure to me is is going to continue to rally in these trades member again. you don't buy commodities when you're when they're cheap you buy them when they're running and when they're expensive and i think there's a lot left to do here.

and that is Christian McCaffrey who joins us now he Christian Marc Millis is Maggie great thanks for the time this afternoon no problem yeah Christian you know it's it's rare when you make a first team all pro in two different positions it's rare when you can lead the NFL in all purpose yards just the third player in NFL history to have one thousand rushing yards in one thousand receiving yards in one season or any of these things and and milestones and accomplishments things that you set out to do this season or you know you're you're all set individual goals and team goals and you know it's definitely something that yet you look at a thousand thousand was one of them but you know at the end of the day it's about winning I think in in the game of football nowadays all other stuff comes and goes but but but winning is are the most important thing but it but it is call and write down a goal in the end up accomplishing it it definitely means a lot you know Christian there was you know you guys did struggle this year in the win column there was a coaching change want to get your thoughts initial impressions here on Matt rule as he comes over Baylor to be your new head coach yeah me with his resume press conference and and you know I think he somebody who who who stars changing things around had an unbelievable history that and as a player you know it's my job to help lead the team and and get the guys are you going to I think we have the right guy for her the clerk for the staff or I think we get a good group of young guys and we got a great group of veteran and we need everybody on board you know we need guys who aren't leaders to step up as leader I think that's that's important that's not always not always but it's on because could you get a start from scratch almost and I think it's the status is in a good spot and and I'm excited about it what does a Christian McCaffrey it feels like the Panthers are on the cusp of a lot of new things you know you have a new owner that came and now you have a new coaching staff you're gonna Avenue all sides of coordinator in Joe Brady who comes over from L. as you but you have one big thing that's going away and that's Luki Klay where is his absence going to be felt the most I think in the Carolinas I think it's gonna reach the entire state of North Carolina and South Carolina but you know he's in around a week you somebody really can't replacing or is someone who brings so much to to wherever he is your guys who is placed each for itself you know we'll miss when Mr three thousand tackle the year but will also is the leader he is not a guy who did it the right way and you know really played the game with a water cpaexcel I think it's tough to put into words you know how how how much will Mister Christian were you surprised by the decision when key could decide to call it a career yes and no you know he he had not told me actually I didn't know until the day columns day and you know it's bittersweet for a guy like that I don't think I've devoted his life to footballer who's done so much for the game are any any really is in my opinion the best one of the best linebackers don't play the game so he went out on his own for more than a lot of people can say and form in on it he is a big honor slash fishermen so you know we hope you join us down to the mat but but I think he'll he'll stay close to the game as much as possible okay is that something you guys bonded over I mean I know you're from Colorado you into that kind of thing too yeah yeah we we we wanna eat fish trip last year we'll try to going on this year and do whatever you can but you know he's such a simple guy I could do to be on a jury is this kid noon come on a trip like that because I feel like going out hunting and fishing with all those tax would be like you know the end of your dead giveaway like no animals getting near you when you're wearing a fedora like that now we would have to have a I tell you what though sometimes Fisher the great thing you could win one of our water maybe we get lucky that so I got on the what about cam here in terms of taking over the big news that I you know into the camps could be part of this team here moving forward here Christian all that's you know that's not my decision I know that if you can it's really exciting for me and all my rookie year one I came into the league in and I've not found out I was one of the Panthers and realize it came into view obviously the quarterback I was thrilled died who who not only is great keeping current leader but yes so much fun playing games it's something that he helped me out with you know and a lot of the older players you having fun with it and join it are you bring such a good energy to to clean so you know I think he's the guy for me and it's been really fun to play with and obviously when he healthy I mean if he's unbelievable optional people talk about Lamar Jackson another thing he did this year are you in just a few years ago that was close we can get him back healthy you know we were were really excited and there are reports just a little about a week and a half ago Ian Rapoport NFL network saying he he expects camp to be traded in what ways could you see the frustration from camp this year just going through the the the shoulder and that was the Liz Frank injury and just with the injuries piling up well football a tough sport in order fortunately you could be healthy for eight years and on nine ten eleven you can't get help yeah that sometimes just the way it goes I just and it's probably more frustrating than anybody because you know help fight anything is on the toughest I've ever played with them you know people talk about this bad about came at the end he's playing unbelievably hurt and actually still doing while you look it two years ago when he was our quarterback and we were we were in the in the games you know hanging with with anybody in the league and it's tough because you know you're you're you're watching guy who can do so much you know fighting through injury and you know we've heard you know he's playing for you we still fight for those extra yard diving over piles of soft it's nice not reaching for the team and you know but but I think when he gets healthy are you going to be on another weapon and if there's anybody it's gonna do everything you can to help you know Chris with that being said I mean I'm sure you you know and can't seem to be one of the players in the NFL that you know on fairly so gets roundly criticize what do you think they're the greatest misconception is of camas a teammate in as a player I don't think I don't think people understand on how personable he is and how how much energy he brings to life you know what you see on the go on Sunday or I see every single day and that's that's powerful you know he he he's like that everywhere you go if you want to sit down and talk to one another he never I've never heard him say a negative thing about any of our teammates or any of our coaches and and that's with a lot of stuff going on to I've never heard of bad mouth anybody he's all positive all good energy and he's a fun guy who wants to win and I think people who don't know him might say stuff feel about whatever about it out it's about some of the stuff he sings but at the end of the day great guy and anybody who genuinely like him I think that's what matters you can't listen to you know people don't even know your your elements when you're talking about maybe I should assume this have you talked to Matt Rolin Joe Brady so far at and if so are are they talking about like what they see for you and camera how they see this offense you know involving all you know we we we talked they're so busy

as a team owner yeah I mean there's there's a million ways that I've felt so far I don't wanna say alright give away secrets but it's it's been really cool being able to see how open he is and and how how you know he he's he truly is wanting to be on the forefront of you know everything from recovery from facility in and what he's done with dinner facility and and build that and fort mill in and

How Trump’s Stock Market Record Stacks Up
"So allison was a anyone's going to move the market mark. It's gotta be the president of the United States right. I mean all that power and influence and has to count for something. You'd think so. So when looking at Google trends as you happen to see a massive spike in the interest in the terms of trump and stocks the week of November six through twelve two thousand sixteen ecksteen and it just so happened to bin we following trump getting elected and along with that you see a lot of articles like seven stocks for a trump presidency wherein the riders make assumptions about which socks are going to perform. Well with trump in. The White House took a few years in picks panning out. Let's take a fairly unscientific. Look shall we please do very short on time for planning for this week's episode so go easy on me everybody all right so ice scrounged up a three articles from back in the day and did some very rough back of the envelope math to see how well do these stock prognosticators do when trying trying to figure out what trump's presidency would mean for some companies and industries so let's start with six stocks to buy when Donald Trump is president from the street. So any guesses on what some of these stocks are going to be or do you just want me to. Do you want me to tell you the stocks and you can guess if they're upper down soon ooh they would be like financial services companies and oil companies. Because they're gonNa you know trump is going to remove all these environmental protections uh-huh and things like that Yup so the street. Now I pick was apple because of something called tax repatriation which I did not have time to research idea being that if you have a bunch of money outside of the US will let you bring it back into the US and at a lower tax rate. There's a lot of companies are starting their money overseas because they don't if they bring it back to the US they'd they'd have to pay taxes. Yes I don't know why that means that Apple's stock price would go up but they picked apple for that another one geo group which is private prisons. We laugh but it's actually very sad. It's funny because it hurts hurts so much yeah again. Exxon Mobil Oil Smith and Wesson gun manufacturers which later there became American outdoor brands HDA Holdings which manages hospitals this one because apparently trump had promised that To kind of overhaul the VA system and allowing veterans to go to any hospital not just a Va hospital and then this one is just so on the nose. It's just it's it's quite funny Semtex the a Mexico based construction company a Mexican company. and Oh because we're gonNA build the wall that's how Mexico's GonNa pay for it. They provide the concrete and said this company was going to benefit Actually they're not concrete walls. That's the thing though so a lot of these were based on at this point of course nothing but campaign promises right so it's really has anything. How do you know for sure that something's GonNa come through? Do you want me to tell you how how these stocks performed or do you want me to move onto the next one and then I can tell you however next one the next one. Hey you know what not to be outdone six stocks for trump. How about seven from the Motley fool? Yes that's right. Hotly full wrote an article seven top stocks to buy with trump. Does the president so along the same lines of apple and tax repatriation This analyst said by General Electric. Aw Sorry it's easy to look back now and laugh as could be the financial services manufacturing part of it. They said tax repatriation was I. I don't know why anyway as and worked out a cheesecake factory won't because individual tax cuts are going to result in people eating out more interesting interesting kinder- Morgan Energy Energy Infrastructure Bank of America. Because of like you said Deregulation General Dynamics Defense Cell gene the biotech company because of again deregulation Possible with like a pricing drugs. Isn't that kind of thing. Yeah and then is it right to say Freeport McMoran McMoran. It's the copper mining company But this one because of trump promising one trillion dollars in infrastructure investment. All right last one. I looked at Kiplinger's best stocks for a Donald Trump Presidency Z.. Their first stock pick there was coach bags which later became tapestry The the idea here was consumer spending from tax cuts and a crackdown on counterfeit pitch Chinese goods. Exxon Mobil Energy the GEO group again for private prisons lazy boy because some people sit around and watch Fox News because trump said as one of his campaign promises that he was going to bring manufacturing back to the US and lazy boy already manufactures actress most of their stuff in the US so merck again because Healthcare Company the Drug Company because Trump would not regulate drug prices Susan Theory Smith and Wesson again for guns and then Vulcan materials the largest US producer of construction aggregates such as gravel and crushed stone so again an infrastructure picture brethren right so now. There's a lot of numbers that I could just shouting at you. But going with the street on average How'd you bought these stocks? The average return here is about twenty seven percent but that was because apple was the one that did really well Without apple all the returns would be a lot less ATA Holdings the hospital. The company that manages hospitals also did well with about ninety. Three percent. Return the Motley Defoe and looking at their pigs. Well as you know there is a couple stinkers here for digitally. Ge has done so well cheesecake factory is not done so well. Bank of America is up very twelve hundred forty six percent General Dynamics defense regulator up about thirty seven percent. If you'd gone with the Motley Fool's picks the average return was about forty percent not bad. Remember Kiplinger's again. They were coach. Exxon Mobil Geo Group. Lazy Boy The big winner here was lazy. Boy Really seventy one percent returns followed by Merck which is about sixty percent and vulcan materials about fifty percent so compare that to the SNP which is out over fifty percent since then so that makes a lot of these stop picks look even more. This is super back of the envelope. And so there's these articles did not all come out the day the same day they didn't anyway Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. But Anyway the point is is that I have a broader counterpoint. What's your broader playwright or point is honestly this is just a reminder that no one can predict what is going to happen in the economy especially based on campaign promises? If you remember with Obama Dama he was going to make all the solar and wind stocks. Just shoot through the roof and sure enough. They did do quite well for a little while. That's right and so and so in the same way the people thought with trump well coal stocks are gonNA energy that oil does all this all this is just. It's just going to go through the roof right so I'm just saying that. Republicans equals guns for Babies and Democrats. Means solar panels for senior citizens is an over-simplification that ignores all the aspects that really matter when you're investing investing in a company like do they have good management. Do they allocate capital wisely. Do they have pricing power et Cetera et CETERA. And while you're certainly free to speculate how how anyone president may move the markets and move stocks. It's more fulfilling to invest in the world. You want to live in in not the one you think you're going to get just because of whoever ever is in power right now and that bro is what's up.

'Total devastation': Hurricane slams parts of the Bahamas
"Will thank heavens hurricane Dorian is finally moving off the Bahamas it just sat there moving like a mile an hour over the whole Bahamas and they got hit really bad there was a life threatening storm surge of up to fifteen feet expected on grand Bahama island and Floridians were freaking out I have family in you know fort Lauderdale and clear water in you know not knowing if the hurricane was going to start moving towards Florida move out to sea I will I am blown away at how they could predict hurricane movement and they predicted that after the bombers it was going to make a right turn I mean it made a beeline it was going to do west I mean street west and then. it's stalled and rather than moving towards Florida is designed to make a right turn and now it is moving up the coast. but still gave huge punches to the Bahamas there's a door is when the tent city has backed off now it's down to a category two I thought I saw just recently was a three still but I think they just downgraded to a two. but now we're worried about the Florida Atlantic coast parts Georgia the Carolinas and even southeast Virginia. and so right now it's still near grand Bahama island the eye wall is pummel the island since Sunday night destructive winds catastrophic storm surge some of the pictures are coming in the Bahamas it is devastated just devastated. it basically had the bombs for over forty eight hours started the apple goes island Sunday morning. settlement point had sustained winds of sixty one miles an hour gusting up to eighty two miles per hour. and right now I believe the speed is down to about a hundred twenty miles per hour of the actual hurricane. and now Florida coast is scenes of destructive damage because of I mean it's about eighty miles from the coast and so you know the waves are huge. beach erosion has already Curtis flats at Flagler beach. National Weather Service weather channel meteorologist Jim Cantore document a damaged homes on Hutchinson island why because of pounding surf squall from out of perfume Dorian continue to wrap into parts of the Florida peninsula. because one visit force winds there now miles an hour arrived at Juno beach Florida. that's going to continue with gusts over sixty miles per hour to Tuesday outer rain bands are also still you know flooding the area and we could possibly have tornadoes along the coast so we have hurricane warnings right now in effect in Florida from Jupiter inlet to punch Verde beach including Mel born in Daytona beach Florida the warning is now but extended to South Carolina from north of at least beach to south Santee river in a hurricane warning still remains in effect for grand Bahama the abacus islands northwestern Bahamas include Freeport and grand Bahama. so hurricane warnings meaning that hurricane force winds remember category one is seventy four miles an hour so hurricane warnings mean that those winds are either already Corinne or expected somewhere within the warning area and that's going to be within a thirty six hour time frame. so a storm surge warning has been issued from land Tampa Florida to south Santee river South Carolina and that includes Daytona beach Jacksonville beach St Simons Tybee island Charleston South Carolina. so you know you would you would watch the weather I was I was glued to the weather channel all weekend and you would see people. walking behind a meteorologist sorry. I don't want to laugh at all because you know what people were doing they were trying to recreate those videos that are online have you guys seen those videos where you have. meteorologist reporters that are trying to look like they're holding on. and you know to find the winds and trying to you know hold their balance and they're screaming in the wind and then you see people walk behind them with an ice cream cone and wave like high. I right or you know I think there was one reporter that tried to claim this weekend that bodes in Florida were already push the shore by the storm. add their all these things being pushed on to the beach and you actually saw the votes are all tied up neatly and it was nice people walking by and you know even in you know smile and things like that and so clearly there's a lot of like you know whether reporting gone wrong people in a boat there's one I forget was one of those Kitty current but somebody was in a boat looking like she had to paddle around and then somebody walked right by her. in a single deep water. it all and then so it you know we know that you know the weather channel these meteorologist they have a job to do and storms are life threatening and they need to get people out and so they're not gonna show a person in a nice dry area tell everybody it's scary they're going to kind of show you know what they need pictorials because some people they just don't evacuate they just leave. Floridians a lot of them did not evacuate them they you know they were waiting for the hurricane advisory to blows my mind that the same age we could be that accurate I mean we were actually it was I was like I don't see how it's going to head towards Florida's commit towards Florida. so you don't think that it didn't hit Florida unfortunately you have that whole coast. that could get hit you know there's an argument that averages one across Florida in a day. we would cause less damage then riding up the coast to Jacksonville Charleston Wilmington Hatteras so the you know so you know we think it's going to be hitting and not really leaving are closed until Sunday heading areas near main and etcetera and at it's a battle on this was bad five people dead so far we're gonna be unfortunately hearing more as the crews are able to get into the Bahamas fully understand the devastation was just enormous this week as NASA but the nation week a lot of people in the Bahamas and Florida you know can't donate blood the Carolinas etcetera because a worried about the the storm and and blood shortages are expected that to happen especially after the bad summer NASA but the nation because the first week of September and as for governors from across United States United to you know help

Dorian Slams into Bahamas and Menaces Florida
"We begin with the breaking news. This hour hurricane dorian the massive deadly storm is now lashing the florida coast powerful winds whipping onshore conditions are getting worse with each passing hour and it is going to be hours upon hours and hours. This is from moments ago from melbourne beach. Florida mandatory evacuations are underway there. Let's show you the storm from the international space station a stunning picture three hundred miles wide right now winds up to one hundred and forty five miles an our the picture of the storms. I just tweeted by u._s. Astronaut onboard the space station so that is the i of dorian seen from space as that storm is essentially sleet stationary moving so slowly ravaging the bahamas which it has been doing us since it came ashore there as a category five storm thirty hours ago it it is the most powerful storm in known history to hit the bahamas decimating the islands. Thousands of homes and businesses are now gone. An entire island is without power tonight. It is way too early to have any sense of the death toll and to give you an idea of just how high the storm surge was what the united states could be looking. Eh you can see waves nearly reaching the second story of home. <hes> rescue crews are just starting the grim task of searching for signs of life among the piles of debris and it the scenes like this that has officials in florida pleading with people in evacuation zones. Were still there to get out of a team of reporters standing by from florida to the bahamas tonight. I want to begin with miguel marquez who is out front in vero beach florida gal. What are people eating the evacuation warnings yes and no there's most the people along. The coast here have evacuated along the way but this storm has been so slow. It's creeping so slowly towards us. We've had this same wind for most of the day to day that is south here at vero beach. We're on the barrier islands here. The sea has been quite rough about the same. We've gotten on some bands of wins but as you look north you can see it's sort of broken up is not quite as much wind and clouds on that end of it so you do. You have some people who are staying sort of coming here to watch see what's happening. Some people coming here to secure their homes before they get out. Most people say they they are. They are going to get out there waiting to see what's happening here. They're watching very closely. What's happening to the bahamas right now and they're all wondering when will make that right word. Turn will head north and if it doesn't if it wobbles toward shore people are concerned about that authorities saying look if you don't get out tonight by a two a._m. Tonight it will really start to come in <hes> in a very big strength here. If you don't get out before those winds hit forty five hours those those bridges to the mainland we'll be closed and you will have to ride it out here on the barrier islands aaron all right miguel marquez. Thank you very much. I wanna go as as miguel pointing. They're indicating getting down south. Just south of miguel stuart florida where brian todd is at this hour so <hes> brian <hes> you know as we understand it. You know it's sort of sitting there as it moves so slowly. What is happening conditions where you are conditions here. Erin are getting worse like they are. Mcgill is look at the storm surge here at this park in stuart stuart florida. The waves have been smacking up against the seawall here all day long. It has been getting worse and if you can see out here looks like a rain band another one of those outer rain bands is about to come in here. You're at seward. It's been like this all day. You'll get an really hasn't let up as far as the wind. The rain has come and gone with the wind has not let up and we are told that the wind is going to get much worse in the next say twelve hours or so here in stewart what also is a concern as you've got the confluence of three large bodies of water that have all been you know had the storm surge been bolstering them <hes> since i guess sunday <hes> where was in the bahamas that storm surge i has been affecting the atlantic ocean over here the indian river lagoon here and the saint louis river right over here. This is a confluence of those three bodies of water all of which have seen the storm surge really get stronger and that makes the flooding here the flooding danger here much worse in addition. We can tell you that right behind us. Here are barrier islands hutchinson island in jupiter island about thirty thousand. The people combined live on those islands. Some of them have gotten out there under mandatory evacuation orders but as you know even under mandatory evacuation they people cannot be forced from their homes. They are concerned though that the people who did not get off these islands are not going to be able to get help once the storm starts. They believe that they're not going to be able to get first responders to them. The bridges are going to be closed. Ridge is going to be too dangerous for first responders to pass over them and they're worried that people here in these barrier islands are going to get cut off for at least a couple of days erin all right brian todd. Thank you very much and let's get the latest now on doors path. Tom sater meteorologist is tracking the storm. So <hes> tom you know is <hes>. You know. You hear people saying well. Let's let's wait. Is it gonna wobble. Is it gonna turn. What is the forecast right now well. We're still hopeful that it's going to start to make that job to the north now and stay offshore but the the door is not closed on that yet the sun is setting and you can see it here in the visual imagery another harrowing night for those in the bahamas about seventy thousand of this northern islands three hundred hundred sixty thousand overall but they're without power communications probably without roofs we've heard of total decimation of homes and the inundation of heavy water and they're going to have a long night tonight it. It is stationary. It's not even moving one mile per hour now. We cover a lot of hurricanes and the c._n._n. Weather center typhoons and super typhoons of the pacific cyclones in the in the indian ocean. I've never seen one put on the brakes like this. Keep its power after traveling aaron. Seventeen hundred miles form barbados through is wobbling a little bit overnight last night. It went through what we call an eye wall replacement cycle. It can't sustain this energy so the eye wall opens up another band and then it contracts syndicates energy back but every time it does that those strong winds extend outward so the storm actually gets broader in its strength you you can see already some rain in the carolinas into florida. We've had some waterspouts. I wouldn't be surprised to see a tornado watch tonight or tomorrow for the eastern half of florida but but even when you get in freeport i mean this is only thirty two miles to the northeast of them. They have been getting a beating but they struck the strongest winds near the i. Maybe just away from them. I'm sure this has changed the coastline in the shape of it right now but what we're watching now of course the warnings have been extended north. Just south of jacksonville now watches her into the carolinas but coming up the second part of this show. I want to talk about the steering currents and what this means every ten fifteen twenty miles is critical. We we need to get that. Turn to the north and i think we may have something that's going to help us out and share it with you in just a little bit all right. Thank you very much. Tom is going to be back with us as we watch this and tom in a few minutes i wanna talk about four pierce one of the city's about to feel the impact a door and when you talk about these wide bands tom linda hudson you see her there the mayor of fort pierce here's joins me now. Live maher. I appreciate your time <hes> obviously the storm dangerously close to florida and so enormous that you have these impacts but so slow that you have some people saying well. I just wanna get a better sense of things. What is your biggest concern right now. Mayor i am concerned that people will not take it seriously we still even though it looks better for us. It's still going to be a serious effect on this area. The winds are going to be high and the storm surge is going to be high and we're concerned about flooding so and we're also wanting people to stay in their homes and not leave their homes until all the all clear so you know obviously you're going to have hurricane-force winds as you as you talk about the storm surge itself could be it could be incredibly deadly <hes>. Are you prepared right right now. Yes we are prepared and i will tell you that we've had lots of time to prepare. How many days have we had to prepare pair. So we feel really good about what we done and <hes> we're experienced at this and i know you can't prepare for every eventuality -ality but <hes> we have a great team that has had experience with matthew and experience with irma and we coordinate well within this county and and we've done the best we can with what we have and we're we're prepared so when darrow people you know who have not evacuated and we are you you know across florida where they're gonna be. Bridges are going to be closing down right. People are going to be stock and they could be stuck for days and if the storm <hes> you know you have a stationary storm like what's happening the bahamas it could be incredibly incredibly deadly <hes> for a loss of life. What is your message to people who have not yet heeded evacuation warnings so they shelter in place ace. They've made that choice and most of them should know the dangers. The dangerous are <hes> when the winds get above forty five miles per hour first responders cannot come and rescue them and so that message is always clear and <hes> we have seven hundred people in shelters right now who heated that message and in a vacuum but couldn't leave but a lot of people left a lot of people left friday saturday and sunday so <hes> the ones that are sheltering in place they know the risk a- and <hes> we're we're all in this together all right. Thank you very much more
